    Maybe the vibration and the jolting of the mower is doing the same thing for your back. Hey, anytime you want another lawn to mow I'll PM you my address!

    You're getting there Pat.

    Hi Fayeboo,

    I don't think they're for home use because they're so expensive. It's called "Whole Body Vibration" or WBV for short. I believe only a few SCI rehab centers have them. Here's a thread that describes them:

    If you do a Search using the word "vibrating" you should find other threads that discuss their use.
